Doing the investigative work the dinosaur, Obama-enabling media won’t do, Scott Baker and a collaborative research team have waded through the sexually explicit reading list endorsed by safe schools czar Kevin Jennings and the group he founded — GLSEN.
Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit posts the team’s report.
Make sure you have an empty stomach before you read.
A few excerpts to get you started:
Reflections of a Rock Lobster – Pages 13 + 14
(At the age of six, the author played “sex therapist” with a five-year-old friend, and “explored our sexuality to its fullest.”)
One friend I was very close to was Billy Marlen. Billy was a year behind me in school yet we got along well together. In our friendship, a special camaraderie existed that was rare in my other friendships. There was a brotherhood that does not often occur even between brothers. We shared our toys and spent many summer days building sandcastles on the beach. On rainy days I’d walk down to Billy’s house where we spent the day reading books and building racetracks and playing sex therapist in his basement. We were human beings who knew no social inhibitions and were willing to explore our sexuality to its fullest.
Passages of Pride – Page 4
(Beginning at the age of five, a young child has sexual encounters with his playmates.)
Throughout his childhood, from age five on, Derek would sneak off with a friend into someone’s basement or the woods along the back alley, where they would take off their pants and play with each other, usually fondling each other’s genitals. It became habitual.
“At that time, I didn’t quite have a name for it,” says Derek. “It was something that I liked doing, that felt good, that I wanted to do as often as I could. The other kids always recognized it as being something bad and dirty. And all I wanted to know was, When can we do it again?”
In Your Face – Page 150
(The author describes how a sudden and impulsive sexual encounter was the healthiest relationship he’s ever had, then regrets the incestuous relationship he had with his cousin.)
But I know in the immediate future I want a very healthy relationship, because I’ve never really had a healthy relationship. The closest I’ve had was with a guy that I met at the lake when we lived in Davenport. I just met him at the lake, and he already had a boyfriend and stuff. I just walked up to him and said, “Do you want to f**k?” and we did. For a week. And then I went home because I couldn’t handle it anymore. The relationship I had with my cousin was very, very twisted, and I didn’t like hiding it. I mean, he was my cousin, and so it feels rather disgusting. But I think that you’re gonna fall in love with whomever you’re gonna fall in love with.
Would Barack and Michelle Obama approve of their daughters reading this in their classrooms?
Is Kevin Jennings bringing his reading list to your children’s school?

Join GLSEN December 8th, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. for a benefit evening of festivities and entertainment with Santa Claus Is Coming Out, an Off Broadway show written and performed by Jeffrey Solomon, and directed by Joe Brancato.
Santa Claus Is Coming Out is a Santa story like you’ve never heard before. Developed at Penguin Rep Theatre, this mock-u-mentary follows Santa in his heartfelt struggle to reconcile his romantic relationship with Italian toy maker Giovanni Geppetto, and he better think of something fast because Christmas is just around the corner! Garnered to induce plenty of hearty chuckles, this clever Santa story is sure to leave you with a new found appreciation for the cheery, snowy-bearded icon.
I first encountered GLSEN in Seattle in 1997, when it was known as GLSTN. They’ve been at this a long time. A flashback:

And Now Some News That’s Fit To Print – But Wasn’t
By Michelle Malkin
Times Editorial Columnist
A bulging file stashed in my bottom desk drawer bears the label “FIT TO PRINT.” It contains numerous and sundry news items that, for whatever reason, have never been published in the pages of our local newspapers. Until now:
– Citizen watchdog exposes Seattle schools’ link to Internet smut. Picture this: Two bare-chested boys embraced in a kiss. A third person, whose face is not shown but is also bare-chested, stands off to the side with his hand on the head of one boy. Below the vivid color photo, which is posted on the Internet home page of a group called “AltKids,” is a caption explaining that the group provides a service “in which gay and bisexual kids can find partners or friends of the same sexual orientation.” To post messages on the site’s “Alternative Connections” page, users must register not just their name and age, but their height, weight, hair color, eye color, address and phone number.
Until last week, after West Seattle citizen activist Linda Jordan and other concerned parents complained to the school board, this on-line “service” was advertised on the “links” section of the National Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Teachers Network (GLSTN). GLSTN provides support to a chapter in Washington state, many of whose members are employed by the Seattle School District’s Sexual Minority Advisory Council. The Council promoted the national GLSTN office’s web site in literature made available to schoolchildren.
Prior to Jordan’s complaint, Seattle students had unlimited access to the GLSTN site and to the smutty AltKids link. After viewing the photos, the district’s legal counsel, Mark Green, contacted the national GLSTN office, which has removed the AltKids link from its site pending further investigation. Green told me that district computer technicians have blocked the site from public school computers. Kudos to Jordan for making the schools safer. But where were all the district’s guardians? What other exploitative materials are children being exposed to in the name of teaching tolerance and self-respect?
MassResistance first posted audiotapes of a sordid 2000 GLSEN conference advocating “fisting” for young high school students last June. Jim Hoft revisits the scandal.
